So I had a friend promise me she would help me make this if I found her a pattern for this design.

However my Google-fu sucks. Anyone have anything that would help or possibly a pattern?

1) Your newfag is showing. We have a help thread. Use the catalog next time, retard.
2) Go back to tumblr. You're going to look like shit. We'll save a nice spot for you in the cosplay fail threads if you ever get around to making this costume.

"Lolita versions" are generally frowned upon here which is why you're getting so much hate.

For the patterns it shouldn't be hard to find yourself, just use general lolita pattern collections and websites

That's not true at all. Well-done and tasteful cosplays using a fanmade design is always welcome (what do you think gijinkas are?) It's just that some kinds (lolita version, steampunk version) look almost universally tacky.

Not that anon, but people cosplay as fan art or actual art sometimes, and it doesn't always look like shit.
I don't get it, do you just hate this BECAUSE it's SnK fan art and nothing else, or is there some disgusting part of the entire design I'm missing?
It looks cute enough, and I'd doubt it'd look too bad IRL as long it's well-made/not cheaply done and OP isn't fat or anything.

Hey, it's ok. We all make dumb mistakes. Next time, ask for help in the 'Help' Thread. Saves for a whole lot of heartache.

Also, as others said, Cosplay Lolita is looked down upon because Lolita is a fashion, not a costume and it really doesn't help the fashion when people make 'costumes' using it's aesthetic.

Why don't you casually drop how thin you are for a third time? I'm sure if it must make up for an unfortunate face or an utter lack of taste.

Are you kidding me
People have said this shit was stupid so many times on this board.
The outfit makes no sense according to the show so cosplayers will hate it, and the lolitas hate nearly any "cosplay lolita" because most don't know what the fuck lolita actually is and it ends up looking terrible.

Problem with cosplaying fanart designs is most of them just don't translate well into real life.That can easily be said of a lot of official art too, but for some reason it stands out more with fanart designs mostly because taking something that's already professionally designed and giving it your own "twist" doesn't usually end in a cohesive, true-to-character look.

Anyone who has cosplayed with a 3DMG will tell you how hard it is to move around in those. Trying to get it on the outside of a poofy skirt like that will just it. You'd need a steelboned mini-hoop skirt at the very least to make that even begin to work. And unless you're a toothpick that bulk will just look bad.

If you really want to go for this don't go higher than 4 and maybe add the cape. The corp jackets are the worst part of that design.

You didn't even fucking try did you OP?
You didn't even try to think how you could make this when you can LITERALLY see picture by picture what you'd fucking need to make this.

DIY:
Poncho pattern
Short jacket pattern with fucking fabric paint
Blouse pattern
Circle skirt with frill on bottom and waist band thickness fucking adjusted
Shit ton of tutorials on making the AOT straps and places on etsy to buy the embroidery patches
tights and boots from ebay.

Buying the fucking outfit:
bodyline- skirt and blouse
ebay- tights, boots, green shawl, embroidery patterns
hellocosplay for jacket and straps

This one is a lot more acceptable than the design OP posted.The jacket still makes it kinda gross, but an a-line skirt makes much more sense and feels a lot more military than that frilly sweet wannabe bullshit. Still the blous it too sweet and should really use a high collared blouse with a jabot or something.

The problem with a lot of "cosplay lolita" designs is that they treat it more as a costume rather than fashion, so the themes are all over the fucking place. There was a LotR fanart with all the dwarves that still kept the appropriate feel of the characters, and that's why it was acceptable and few who cosplayed it actually looked kinda good. The SNK fanart here in question is shitty because it's forcing sweet elements in a military setting when there has been such things as military themes already existing in lolita.

I don't get it. People are running around with scepters, oversized spoons and plush toys (and i don't mean the plush bags, they're at least some sort of useful) but getting buttmad over "Cosplay Lolita".

Why can't we just hate both equally?

Adding OTT themes to an outfit to make it like a costume is fine. Cosplay lolita is a specific character or fandom, it's totally different.

I'm not one to go all up in arms about "lolita is just a fashion!!!" protip, it's going to look like a costume to any and every normalfag so stop trying. Even toned down lolita is really OTT compared to normalfag clothing.

People saying "it's just a fashion" are always so adamant about pointing out shit like you did making the fashion more 'costumey' when really, why would you parse it with normalfag fashion anyways. It's supposed to be eye grabbing and out there, stop trying to contain it because you view something OTT as a costume.

Don't get me wrong, I'm totally with you that compared to normalfag fashion lolita will always look like some weird carneval costume, no matter if toned down or OTT. I just don't get why it's okay to "costume it up" if you can say it like that with props, but Cosplay Lolita is frowned upon.

And i don't think OTT is more costumey, i just don't like "props". I probably should have worded it a better.
